0-0 | Conan saves a point in a frenetic clash

It ends all square in an intense duel in which Ledesma was the hero.

As expected, Cádiz and Celta played an intense match to open the day on Saturday. From the beginning, both teams wanted to make their game philosophies clear, and the match was a game without spaces, with many divided balls and with both teams waiting for the mistake of a very focused opponent to open the scoreboard. No chances, but with a lot of intensity.

Perhaps the most dangerous chance of the first half came from Choco, when he found a rejected ball in the heart of the box and his shot, which did not go with the desired force, was caught low by Dituro. With some approaches to Celta's box that did not materialize, and lateral crosses from the yellows, the first half came to an end.

Little would change the script at the start of the second half, but the passing of the minutes would turn the match into a festival of back and forth. With arrivals from one team and the other, the scoreboard had chances to open. The biggest chance would arrive at the hour mark, when Choco in front of goal came close to scoring with clear options.

The match was taking revolutions as the clock was running, from one side and the other. And it would end up getting crazy in the final minutes. In the 82nd minute, Mateu Lahoz pointed to the penalty spot in favor of the 'celestes'. Conan Ledesma saved Santi Mina's kick with a brilliant save to his right.

The Yellows would respond with some dangerous arrivals to Dituro's goal, but the moves did not end up finding the net. Santi Mina could have scored in the last minute in a quick move, but it was invalidated for offside. Finally, the referee signaled the end of the match and the points were shared.
